Most of the chapter is devoted to cyclic stress fatigue because, as mentioned, it is the most common type of fatigue. Walter will also be highlighting other technologies, such as counterboring and precision boring tools, through-hole taps, cutting fluids, and coolants. www.methodsmachine.com http://1.usa.gov/1uc7vpb. Fatigue damage can grow undetected until the material fails suddenly and without warning. Fatigue is the most common cause of damage to aircraft structures and engine components. IMTS 2014 booth #S-9490. The SX parting and grooving system features coolant supply through the tool. Michael Standridge is an aerospace industry specialist at Sandvik Coromant and can be reached at 800.SANDVIK or, Rod Emery, vice president of Assembly Systems, RedViking, can be reached at, EMO Hannover 2017 Machine Tools Roundtable, Aerospace markets in 2021 webinar with Richard Aboulafia. Built around positive-displacement pumps, the Quantum provides accurate and consistent lubricant output. The hydraulic clamping system allows for maximum tangential clamping force up to 140,000Nm (103,244 lb-ft). ; and the University of Virginia (UVA) in Charlottesville were named first- through third-place winners, respectively, of the agency’s 2013-2014 University Aeronautics Engineering Design Challenge. www.sunnen.com This level of precision takes time. Readily available, aluminum was used everywhere from the fuselage to main engine components. About the author: Michael Standridge is an aerospace industry specialist at Sandvik Coromant and can be reached at 800.SANDVIK or firstname.lastname@example.org. The advantages of this scalable automation process include increased productivity, improved machine utilization rates, reduction of the need for additional machines to achieve desired plant production volumes, and more consistent production quality. Furthermore, wood absorbs moisture, warps and decays over time, which meant that aircraft required continuous maintenance and on-going repairs. This redesigned vise, like its predecessor, reduces setup time for second operation vertical machining when integrated with existing machine tools and vises. Fatigue is defined as the deterioration to the structural properties of a material owing to damage caused by cyclic or fluctuating stresses. Also, compared to other industries, aerospace component orders often consist of short run quantities and long lead times, rendering scheduling for productivity, throughput, and profitability difficult. Unlike any other industry but oil and gas, which also has high temperature, pressure, and corrosion requirements, aerospace materials themselves impact component design. www.cgtech.com 1.1). In addition, the live boring spindle can use 50-taper tools up to 750mm long, and an auto-coupler provides the interface for feedout tools, such as programmable boring bars. CGTech has integrated its software with Kennametal’s NOVO application. Gopal, in Advanced Composite Materials for Aerospace Engineering, 2016. With all main machine elements made of cast iron, the rigid, robust, and stable design provides for high precision. An optional guide pot automatically guides the honing tool straight into the bore. Fatigue resistance is the ability of structural materials to maintain an acceptable level of strength under fluctuating stress conditions. Battery-free AGVs have integrated configurable security sensors to avoid collisions. A further requirement is observer observation of fabrication of acceptable quality, including microstructures (Fig. Also important, composite components can be formed into complex shapes that, for metallic parts, would require machining and create joints. This approach is being applied more and more in aerospace component design because its components have to accomplish certain loads and temperature resistances, and some materials can only accommodate so much. Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the engineering art of designing components with a balanced approach, taking into consideration both component function and its manufacturing requirements. Corrosion fatigue is described in the next chapter on the corrosion of aircraft metals. It provides up to 4,000 lb of precision force without distorting workpieces. Ground transportation vehicles: In order to improve fuel efficiency, the weight of ground transportation vehicles must be kept to a minimum.
